Failure To Launch

When I was younger, my ideal marrying age was 30.

Right about that time, I met this gorgeous girl.

We became inseparable and made such a cute couple. Everyone thought we were perfect for one another.

But like most fairy tales, that relationship did not last.

Looking back, I did love her. In fact, I wanted to marry her. At the time, I could see myself walking down the altar with her.

Then reality bit me in the ass.

Raft3r is now over 30 and no longer wishes to marry.

I may still change my mind, though. But I can't take back the years.

If it's not meant to be, then, it's not meant to be. Never live your life with regrets. You are still young(because we are the same age) and greater things will come your way.(Do I sound like a greeting card?)

Jella said...

Wow, parang may idea ako kung sino ito ah, hehe. But of course, I may be wrong pa rin. (,") Ikaw, not the marrying type? You just haven't found her yet, or you've found her na but you wouldn't want to let me know about it yet, hahaha.

Don't look back at the years. What's important is the wisdom and lessons you've learned over the years, right? (,") See you soon!

Raft3r said...

st_leobinus, Well said. Hehe

jella, I'm over the hill. Nyahaha

there is nothing wrong with wishing not to marry. in fact i think it is the perfect thing in the world... until you get sick and grow old alone. LOL

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, Nyahaha. Who wants that, right?

-> You got that right, buddy boy, we're getting old. On my part, dumadami na uban ko. Nasobrahan yata ng dedikasyon sa trabaho, wala namang salary increase, ewan ko ba. Hindi ko na tuloy ma-update yung walang kwentang blog ko. :P

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Hehe. Do the Jodie Foster post na kasi!

Andy Briones said...

Gabundok yung trabaho ko, kaya hindi ko matapos-tapos yung mga pending posts ko; hirap manilbihan. Parang gusto ko na tuloy tumaya ng lotto para hindi ko na kailangan magpaka-alila sa opisina.

Baka pala tungkol kay Jodie at Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs) yung gawin ko. Hindi ko alam kung kelan ko matatapos ito, ehehe.

Raft3r said...

andy briones, She's directing a new movie!!! Work kills. Kaya ingat. Hehe

malatemail said...

sorry dennis it didnt work out between us. haahaha.

bisaja said...

Baka di mo pa lang sya nahanap. Pero hindi masama if you choose to stay single forever. Kaya lang, you'll be alone and lonely when the time comes. TRemember, the pamangkins won't always be there.

Maybe you can do an agreement with you girl friend, mala My Best Friend's Wedding. Kahit for partnership's sake lang, so you have someone to grow old with.

Anyhoot, wala namang "expiration date" ang mga lalaki, eh. Hahaha!

pixie27 said...

ok lang yan...yung iba nga 50 yrs old na nung kinasal eh...yun nga lang di na young looking fafa.. Old looking fafa na Joke!

Anonymous said...

Di mo pa lang talaga nahahanap. When you finally meet her, baka ikaw pa ang magmadali sa pagpapakasal, hahaha.

liza said...

ayan tuloy kakamadali ko anonymous and na-click ko hahaha.

Raft3r said...

malatemail, Nyahaha. Wala akong masagot don, ah. Hehe

bisaja, May sagot na ako. It will be in my next post. Hehe

pixie27, Old looking fafa na ako ngayon pa lang. Hehe. Saka idol ko si George Clooney. Nyahaha

anonymous, Hehe. Baka nga. Ewan natin. Hehe

liza, Nyahaha. Ikaw pala si anonymous. Hehe

eden said...

some of us are not lucky enough in the first launch. But maybe in the second launch, who knows.. hehehe

happy sunday !

Raft3r said...

eden, Word of the wise. Hehe. Thanks!

hitokirihoshi_kawaii said...

ah over 30 ka na... akala ko nasa late 30s ka pa lang.(",)

hmmm wala ako ma-comment sa love life na 'yan at kasal... bata pa ako, di ko pa naiisip yang mga yan. hehehe

kaya gusto ko na lang mag-imagine e, kasi yung reality nangangagat ng ass. so scary!

mabuhay and be happy! wala bang pa-3 in 1 plus 1 dyan?

len said...

Sayang ang miles, este, ang genes! nyhahaha

Seriously now, may be you haven't found the right girl yet. At the same time, tatlo naman ang vocation sa mundo -- single blessedness, married life at celibacy. Whatever category you fall into, live life. :p

liza sweetie said...

sweetie! did you get my text nung 14? i didnt 4get your bday ha..hehe..di ka lang sagot so i thought wala ka dito..anyway, i hope you had fun! let's enjoy being single :)

Judayski said...

*high fives raft3r*

they say you should never say never but when something whose moment already passed...ang hirap na i-duplicate ulit nung hope.

naks, may ganun?!

Raft3r said...

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Tapos na ang 3 in 1 plus 1 natin! Hehe

len, Bakit kelangan may celibacy? Nyahaha

liza sweetie, Yes. I got your text. Tama ang hinala mo. Hehe

judayski, Para san ang hope? Nyahaha

Wendy said...

Mahirap magsalita ng tapos eh. Baka kainin mo rin yan sa bandang huli pag nakita mo ang "the one." Hopefully, the right one yun, not the left one. Hehe, parang tsinelas.

Raft3r said...

wendy, May disclaimer naman ako sa huli. Hehe

Beth said...

Bisaja is right. Wla nman expiration date ang mga guys so don't rush. :)

And don't ever marry just for the sake of it. I know you will find the right one for you. For the meantime, leave missus behind first because no girl in her right mind notices someone who's already "married". :)

Take care!!!

Raft3r said...

beth, Nyahaha. Thanks. Believe me. I am in NO rush. I LOVE being unattached.

len said...

Malay mo naman maisipan mo biglang magpari later on. nyahahaha

Suntok sa buwan ba? hehehe

Raft3r said...

len, Masyado akong makasalan para mag-pari. Hehe

laieesha said...

i get what you mean... who wouldn't want to play the field, right?? hehe but eventually, it'll be lonely and you will settle.

contrary to what judayski said, i think you can definitely duplicate the hope. hey, i was with someone for 7 years, on the verge of getting married, until I got tired and said, "OK, BYE!" i haven't lost hope. i KNOW it will happen but im in no rush to get there.

there's no rule or law out there that says you HAVE to get married at a certain time or age. im totally taking my time. there's nothing wrong if you do the same. 30's is the new 20's, di ba??

Raft3r said...

laieesha, Tama yan! Hehe

The Scud said...

masarap maging single. unattached. walang hassle. walang stress. you can ask anyone out. :D

Raft3r said...

the scud, Yeah. It's catching on.

sows said...
